Innerkip, Ontario $5 Hosta Sale

jeremywalshJune 7, 2012

Visited a great annual Hosta sale in Innerkip, ON. last weekend. AMAZING yard, over 425 varieties on display in the garden.

There were ~150 varieties for sale at only $5 each. I was warned to be there early...sale started at 8, I got there at 6:40 and there were about 10 people waiting already. I grabbed 10 and was gone by 7:15.

I picked up: Ghost Spirit, Gypsy Rose, Grand Tiara, Dark Star, Deja Blu, Reptilian, Gunsmoke, Alex Summers, On Stage and Torchlight.

Definitely going to be a new tradition.

Ghost Spirit

Gypsy Rose

Grand Tiara

Deja Blu (hoping for that elusive lighting edge)

Dark Star

On Stage (a little rough, but for 5 bucks...c'mon)

Torchlight

Nice! Great score. I will keep my eye open for that sale next year. It is a bit far away from me but for $5 hostas; definitely worth it. Thanks for the tip.

Lucky you. They all look healthy. I really like upright hostas. Torch Light and Dark Star are awsome. I just happened to take a picture this morning of my 'On Stage' in its third year. It's always late in emerging.

Beautiful On Stage...I look forward to my scruffy one looking like that in a while.
